Lined Tote Bag with Leather Handles

Lined Tote Bag with Leather HandlesFabulous, practical, stylish and unique!
Learn the basics of tote bag making, including box corners and an internal pocket. And then, once you have a handle (sorry for the pun) on the techniques, play around with the fabrics and proportions to create bags to suit you and your needs!

This project is perfect for creating gifts… and it is a great stash buster too! Piece together your leftover fabric scraps or garments that you no longer wear to create bags that are kind to the planet!
